Inspired by the progressive riding style of Patrick Rebstock, the new 2013 Celeritas has been upgraded to be a perfect modern surf machine. While still maintaining its short trunk style and aggressive concave, the new Celeritas features an updated curvy outline with a redesigned thumb tail that provides more surface area allowing the board to get extra lift and control in between turns.
It also features a fast rocker line that blends from the center to the tail giving this board off the chart speed while maintaining perfect control. The 2013 Celeritas also comes with Slingshots new insert layout for easier strap installation and our industry compatible high impact fin system that provides extra protection and lets you put more power in your wave riding. This innovative board excels everywhere from your favorite local spot to that undiscovered paradise youre always searching for. SKU: 1321
WVX (BAMBOO VENEER + FLUID X) WVX construction is built with layers of bamboo wood, resin and weaved lightweight fiberglass combined with a strong EPS core. During each layering step vacuum bagging techniques are used to enhance the bonding strength. Proprietary to Slingshot, this construction controls the durability and flex of the board. The result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board. A final layer of glass provides the highest fit and finish of any kite surfboard on the market. WVX construction features our Fluid X Vibration Dampening System for an unrivaled smooth ride. These lightweight boards are the next step in the evolution of kite surfboards that deliver the perfect balance between performance and durability with elegant styling.
FEATURING FLUID X - VIBRATION DAMPENING SYSTEM. Fluid X was born from the ski and snowboard industry. It made sense to look toward progressive snowsports technology to provide state of the art dampening control to reduce vibration and create a clean and smooth feel throughout all our high performance boards. Fluid X also provides an anti-torsion property that runs from tip to tail and its visco-elastic stringer improves the dynamic behavior of the core construction that allows more flex, more response and the smoothest feel unlike anything youve experienced on a kite surfboard. With Fluid X, we finally manage to give our boards a Polyester feel with the durability of an epoxy lay up.
